Talked to an old soldier one time. He was a wise man, and a smart man. I respect him greatly. One time he said to me something along the lines of "If you have a gun and a criminal has a gun, the criminal wins. It is hard to pull that trigger when you can end a life."

Although most may not believe it, most people who own guns know that you have to know how to use said gun, unless you want to arm whoever is gonna mug/steal/etc you.

most people who own guns should know how to use them, and where to aim, you can shoot a person all you want, however if you know what your doing, you won't kill them.

But if you have a gun and the criminal doesn't, you win.
You probably don't even have to pull the trigger.

Except if everyone can have a gun, why wouldn't the criminal? Especially if people are blatantly carrying them around on their hips.

Not all criminals can afford a gun, and not all criminals are murderers. It's cheaper and easier to rob unarmed people with a knife than to buy a gun and increase your risk of killing someone. Or if you're burglarizing a house, you do it at night or while the owners are away because you don't actually want a confrontation, much less one that ends in you killing someone.

Openly carrying a gun on your hip is like a "no mugging" sign that actually works.
